Now Virtual June 17th - June 19th 

Standard Registration Deadline is June 7th

Due to the spreading COVID-19 Pandemic, the 11th International ICTD Conference will be held in June 2020 in a virtual format. Originally, ICTD 2020 was to be hosted by Ecuador’s leading technical university, ESPOL in Guayaquil. 

The ICTD community sends its best wishes to our colleagues in Guayaquil, which has been particularly hard hit by the COVID-19 crisis.

COVID-19 Update: March 30th 2020

As travel restrictions are likely to continue well into June, we’ve made the decision to transition the conference to a virtual format. We’ll likely use Zoom, and hold the conference during the original dates. This will be a learning experience for all of us. We look forward to working together to make it a wonderful experience! Publication via the ACM Digital Library will continue as planned.


Registration will open in mid-April and continue until a few days prior to the conference. To provide online security, only those registered will be able to participate.
